  • cardiovascular
  • Later on, additional studies from the United Kingdom revealed confirmed that, deprivation of nutrition during intrauterine life and low birth weight is associated with substantial morbidity from cardiovascular diseases as well as mortality in both men and women. (kofinasperinatal.org)
  • The option of treating peripheral artery diseases like IC and CLI through IM injections of PLX-PAD cells is promising, and an important outcome, demonstrating the potential ability to implement regenerative medicine advanced technologies in cardiovascular diseases. (cafepharma.com)
  • fetus
  • Mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation disorders in an affected fetus are associated with maternal diseases of pregnancy, including preeclampsia, acute fatty liver of pregnancy, and the hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets syndrome called HELLP. (physiology.org)
  • Because this supply of glucose is constant, consistent, and reliable, it has been suggested that the placenta and fetus do not need to regulate energy-producing metabolic pathways. (physiology.org)
  • Pluristem's
  • It is important to note that Pluristem's method of extracting stem cells from the placenta does not involve embryos in any way. (fastcompany.com)
  • Study results also validate the design of Pluristem's ongoing Pivotal Phase III study in CLI, a more severe stage of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and confirm Pluristem's proprietary Bio-Therapeutic approach. (cafepharma.com)
  • The key secondary endpoint was the change from baseline in MWD at 52 weeks compared to placebo, in patients treated with 2 doses of PLX-PAD originating from different placentas (Pluristem's proprietary Bio-Therapeutic approach). (cafepharma.com)
  • Pluristem's proprietary Bio-Therapeutic approach of using cells originating from different placentas for each administration, as implemented in the CLI pivotal Phase III clinical study, was shown to generate a superior therapeutic effect. (cafepharma.com)
  • nutrients
  • The placenta provides oxygen and nutrients to your growing baby and removes waste products from your baby's blood. (pharmacypedia.org)
  • The focus of most research has been on transplacental passage of nutrients, including both amino acids and fatty acids, but the metabolic fuel required by the human placenta has not been determined conclusively. (physiology.org)
  • successfully
  • An Israeli biotechnology firm is harvesting stem cells from human placentas that appear to successfully treat multiple sclerosis, diabetes, alcoholism, and even sports-related injuries. (fastcompany.com)
  • adherent
  • The PLX cells are developed from adherent stromal cells harvested from human placentas following birth that are then placed in a bioreactor for several weeks. (fastcompany.com)
  • syndrome
  • Fetal Hemoglobin Quantitative Trait Locus 1, also known as delta-beta thalassemia , is related to hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin-beta-thalassemia syndrome and hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin-sickle cell disease syndrome . (malacards.org)
  • human
  • An Israeli biotechnology firm is betting that stem cells harvested from human placentas can help treat a host of diseases-and strengthen muscles in the process. (fastcompany.com)
  • We have investigated the developmental expression and activity of six fatty acid β-oxidation enzymes at various gestational-age human placentas. (physiology.org)
  • Trophoblast cells in culture oxidized tritium-labeled palmitate and myristate in substantial amounts, indicating that the human placenta utilizes fatty acids as a significant metabolic fuel. (physiology.org)
